Day 46 - Burlington WA - Friday, June 24, 2011

Today is another errand day and this time it is Nita and I who take off to Burlington to pick up a few items for our boats.  It is a long day for us, and on the way home we hear that Bob and Herb are having a long day as well with their projects, so someone suggests that we go to Flounder Bob's Restaurant at Skyline Marina near their house for dinner.  But first we must take Nita's purchases to her boat, and we discover a bottle of red wine for Happy Hour on "Nellie too."

Flounder Bob's Restaurant has very interesting decor with a nautical theme and a beautiful view of the marina with a residential area on the hills beyond.  The flags each represent a letter of the alphabet, and we wonder if they spell "Flounder Bob."

Bob grabs my camera to get a photo of the other three of us.

And we hear Dan who is pictured sitting at a table above us on the right say, "I'll be happy to take a photo of all of you."

We take him up on it.

Dan tells us that he is here on a 52 boat and will be going to Alaska.

He is quite a delightful person with whom to talk, and shows his sense of humor.

He tells us that they did not serve sushi on his table.  We all laugh at the joke when we notice our table centerpiece.

I am happy to see halibut on the menu and Nita and I order halibut tacos.  They are huge and more than we can eat.  Oh, how delicious, and what a value!

As we leave the restaurant, Herb shows me a telegraph which has been taken from a large ship.  It is used by the skipper on the bridge to let the engine room know his desired speed and direction. It sounds a bell below.
